Best Buy Education Can Help You Transform Your School! $25,000 #Giveaway

Disclosure: In exchange for this review, I will be compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card. As a huge proponent of education though, all opinions stated are genuine and my own.

 

Every school, no matter the budget, looks for ways to increase funding for technology. I know my son's elementary school has both desk tops computers and Macs for the students. They also have iPads in the classrooms and they use big SmartBoards in place of what used to be the blackboard back in my day. Still...the principal, and he is a go-getter, is always looking for ways to improve and give his school an even bigger technology-edge. I think it's wonderful.

Best Buy Education, a direct-channel division of Best Buy®, makes it easier than ever to give students the tech tools they need to succeed. Thier dedicated Account Managers will consult with you, offer knowledgeable, unbiased advice and guide you to the product and service solutions that best meet your needs and budget. Whether you are rolling out new devices in the classroom, launching a BYOD initiative, or upgrading the technology throughout your school, we can provide the products, support and protection you need
Best Buy Education is now offering an exciting sweepstakes open to all educators and administrators. The sweepstakes is running from now through July 4, 2015 with a grand prize of $25,000 in Best Buy credit, as well as additional prizes of Gift Cards and Microsoft Surface Pro 3 tablets with keyboards. This is an amazing opportunity to win the technology tools and services your students need to succeed.  Visit www.BestBuySweeps.com to enter for a chance to win and view complete details.
